Cincinnati Enquirer Coaches' Poll
CMAC Twitter followers have voted and this week's CMAC Game of the Week (1/6/2017) will feature Hughes High School traveling to Aiken High School as the Big Red will battle it out with the Falcons.
Hughes (7-3) is coming off a huge holiday tournament championship win in which they played great team ball. They'll look to keep their hot streak going as they attempt to hold 1st place in the CMAC.
Aiken (1-9) has fought through a difficult early season schedule. The Falcons have lost a few close games but will try to take advantage of their 2nd of 3 straight home contests in the CMAC as they want to gain momentum in 2017.
Make sure you get to Aiken High School for a 7:30 pm tip-off! @CMAC_sports will be live tweeting and broadcasting the game live on Periscope!
Hughes defeated Aiken in dramatic fashion in last week's CMAC Game of the Week with a buzzer beater as time expired, 63-62!
The Hughes High School boy's basketball team took a trip to Sandestin Beach, Florida over winter break to compete in the Hilton Sandestin Beach Basketball Blowout. This tournament brought together high schools representing several states throughout the nation, including Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, and more. Hughes, being the only Ohio high school, swept their opponents in 4 games on the way to winning the tournament championship.
Corry Long, SR. and Stony Brook University commit, led the Big Red on the court averaging 21.5 PTS, 7 AST, and 5 REB per game while earning tournament MVP honors. Dwayne Rosado, JR. also left his imprint on the tournament as he averaged 18.5 PTS and 3 AST per contest and was also named to the All-Tournament team. Both players were also rewarded by being named CMAC Athletes of the Week!
Hughes heads back to Cincinnati with quite a bit of momentum as they resume CMAC play on January 6 at Aiken High School.
